Christmas time is here once again. This is actually my favorite time of the year since this is the time when I can enjoy different kinds of foods and holiday treats. This is also a time where I don’t have to feel guilty when my glutton to food activates. In fact, I am starting to see news and updates in my social media sharing those newest Christmas food recipes and desserts. I could not help but to drool over them. LOL. I am indeed a glutton when it comes to Christmas foods.
Well, it’s been a week since I started planning for our Christmas menu. Since mom isn’t around and will not be around this holiday season, it seems like arranging our Christmas foods will be assigned to me. My nieces would surely want to have some Christmas treats on Christmas eve. But for someone like me who is not very good at baking and preparing (well I am not very fond of kitchen anyway), it’s really hard to come up with best Christmas dessert recipes. Good thing there are some cute yet easy Christmas treats recipes that I have found online. Here are they.
